House Wireless Security

Home wireless security systems represent one of the most effective methods of home security.

The system transmits its connection either via a radio frequency or infrared light rays and can either be monitored or unmonitored. Monitored wireless alarms transmit signals to a monitoring station of the applicable security business when the alarm is triggered.

Frequently these alarms aren’t audible within the home. Conversely, unmonitored wireless alarm systems, when triggered, transmit an extremely loud alarm or a siren with flashing lights, but don’t notify any monitoring station.

The control panel is the heart of the alarm system and is generally located in the basement or a hidden panel. In wireless home security systems, magnetic switches are installed on the doors and window frames with an additional switch installed on the door or window to ensure that if the switch is moved out of position an alarm is triggered.

In hallways or large rooms motion sensors are installed to ensure coverage of the entire home. In some cases, home wireless security alarms utilize infrared sensors, motion detectors, which detect movement within the room or hallway, or temperature sensors capable of detecting body heat. If any one of these sensors is triggered, a signal will be transmitted to the control panel which then analyzes the signal to determine if the intrusion is authorized or not. Keypads are then used to disarm or arm the system. These keypads are generally located near the primary entrance to the home.

Wireless security alarm systems have six benefits over wire security systems.

1. Typically easy to install. You can install them yourself because they don’t require the exact positioning of wires.

2. Ability to install anywhere because wires aren’t used

3. The wireless systems are adaptable unlike the wire systems whre you are required to review the wiring plans prior to any altering of the system.

4. The wireless systems have a more uncluttered look because they don’t require wires running throughout the home.

5. The wireless security system is much more difficult to tamper with unlike the wired systems which can be rendered inoperable if the wires are inadvertently severed.

6. The wireless alarm system is simple to maintain requiring only preservation of the power supply, which is generally batteries. A simple routine check of the batteries will maintain a dependable system.

Take these six benefits into consideration when deciding on which type of alarm system will work the best in your situation.
